The GreenWorks 27032 is a corded electric lawn edger that is best suited for small yards. It uses a powerful motor to quickly cut through tough overgrowth, and with the spring-assisted front wheel, you can adjust the depth at which the edger cuts into the lawn.
This electric edger has a 12-amp motor, which is powerful enough to cut through overgrowth and tough areas without much issue. The motor drives a 7.5-inch double-edged blade that you can adjust to different cutting positions to get the overall look you desire. To extend the life of the blade, you can edge the same area two or three times, gradually lowering the blade with each pass. You can cut up to 1.5 inches deep with this edger.
The GreenWorks 27032 has the stick design associated with lawn trimmers. This makes it easy to store away when you're not using it. The shaft is extendable, so you can adjust it to your height. The tool comes with a secondary handle that you can adjust to make the edger both comfortable and easy to handle. With the two wheels in the back and one up front, you can guide the machine forward instead of holding it upright like a trimmer. The wheels also make it easy to edge along curbs, as all the wheels can fit on most curbs.
Unlike gas edgers, which tend to have heavy engines, the GreenWorks 27032 is lightweight, coming in at 13.24 pounds. This makes the edger very easy to handle and control, so you can maneuver it exactly where you need it. Because it requires a power outlet to operate, the edger is best suited for small yards where you can reach any edging area with an extension cord. The cord lock prevents the extension cord from disconnecting every few steps. Starting the tool is as easy as connecting the power cord and pressing a button. You don't have to fiddle with a pull cord to get it up and running.
The lightweight nature of this edger means its substantially less powerful than other models we reviewed. The most powerful edger we saw was the Troy-Bilt TB516 EC.
This electric edger has a four-year warranty that protects you against manufacturer defects due to material or workmanship. As with other edgers, this warranty does not protect against damage caused by misuse, abuse or alteration, intentional or accidental.
The GreenWorks 27032 is a powerful electric edger that uses a 12-amp motor to give your yard a crisp, clean appearance. This edger is best for small yards because it requires an extension cord to operate, so it can't reach distant areas on large properties.
